Residential Development and Refurbishment, Central Cross, Croydon, UK
A 3,300 m2 residential development of high-quality compact living apartments in Croydon.
Conversion and extension of an existing, 4 storey office building that has been granted consent under permitted development to provide 82, one and two bed apartments. Twelve Architects has been appointed to design an additional eight penthouse apartments on top of the existing building and remodel the external façade to include new balconies, upgrading of the thermal envelope and the design of amenity space to the front of the site.
The design reclad’s the existing building with materials that are more contextual to the surroundings. New staggered balconies create external amenity space and help to reduce the apparent scale of the building. A new entrance atrium creates an accent at the corner of the site.
